New Moon in Taurus 2024

On May 7th, 2024 the Sun and Moon align at 18 degrees Taurus 2 minutes, creating our New Moon. This is the break we’ve been waiting for, when the Eclipse’s of March/April have set the course, and now we begin again. It is a time to set new goals, directed by the lessons learned through these mighty luminaries.

When we set our goals, it is important to work with the energies presently available. Taurus is a Fixed Earth sign. Fixed as it arrives in the middle of Spring, the second month when Spring is solid, grounded and anchored into its environment, like the seeds that have taken root. Taurus energy brings the nurturing that is necessary for a seed to sprout. Taurus is simple, basic, uncomplicated energy. Taurus is the first earth sign of the Solar year. The earth element adds a sensory component to Taurus energy that encourages the individual to seek satisfaction and/or gratification. Earth signs make good cooks, gardeners, artists, designers, life enhancers. Seeking satisfaction through the senses is a typical earth desire, and can be a gift or a curse, depending on the level of attachment to it. Taurus people can struggle with that.

While we have the Sun and Moon together in this sign, we look to the nature of the sign to align our goals. The best way to look at it is to create new momentum in the direction the sign provides us; finances, values, beauty, comfort and security. After the last two Eclipses, we are more aware of what lies before us and how we can accommodate our well being now. Had we not experienced these, we might have still been creating from an old paradigm, one that held us hostage in our thinking. We may not have felt deserving of a better life before, but now that we have cleared the decks of our fears and tribulations, we can paint on a new canvas.

This New Moon has support from three planets; Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus. Jupiter is conjunct the Sun and Moon at 25 degrees Taurus. With Jupiter on board, material comfort and security are very important. Your thinking is practical and your love of the Earth matters more than ever. You are inspired to really enjoy the sensual pleasures life offers us. Jupiter expands our awareness and optimism in regards to all things we love. You are blessed with abundant self-confidence, and cheerful generosity. Your good will and friendliness will win you many allies. You also have grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. You expect the best, and usually get it. You are more tolerant and forgiving at this time, ready to overlook mistakes and give others a second chance. You will expect the best from people and draw it out of them; and because of your emotional generosity, your life can become rich with friends, and possibly financial blessings as well.

Saturn sextiles the Sun and Moon at 17 degrees Pisces. It gives us the sense of longing or homesickness for something you cannot name or specify, and you may have both a great attraction toward, and fear of, mysticism and parapsychology. Overcoming feelings of fear, guilt, anxiety, loneliness, or oversensitivity is an important task for you now. Educating yourself about what lies beneath the surface of our judgments and beliefs is available to us at this time, in order to put our life in the right perspective. Realistic and practical, you can set goals for yourself that are modest enough for you to actually achieve. You’ll be able to tackle long, difficult projects and see them through, for now you possess self-discipline, concentration, and perseverance. You also have a strong sense of responsibility and are very conscientious in fulfilling your obligations.

And the last planet helping us to change is Uranus conjunct the Sun and Moon at 22 degrees Taurus. When Uranus is in this sign, business and practical matters, and implementing scientific ideas in practical ways can make life more comfortable. You seek a life that is more spontaneous and free. You may identify with the role of the rebel, ready to lead others into a new way of thinking and behaving. You crave excitement and emotional freedom and may like to break the rules and take risks. Anything new or untried appeals to you and you have little patience with restrictive customs. You are more attracted to unusual, creative, or offbeat people and nontraditional lifestyles.

So now with a broader understanding of what is being made available to us, you can climb the ladder of success more easily. Let go of the past and renew your intentions for a brighter future, regardless of what you are being told by those who wish to keep us hostage in our old thinking. Be free to dream of a new tomorrow.
